She is DONE!

I finally finished her! I think it came out great. I redesigned the pup to my match my sweet little Jenny, and I added a heart inside the quaker motif with her initials below it in teeny tiny backstitching. Speaking of which, I backstitched the pup in a really light beige, which makes her pop off the fabric a bit more. This is probably one of my favorite things I've stitched so far in my life.

SO CUTE! I can't even stand that doggie-it's too much!

And here is some stash I left out of my previous post. Some of the stash I've recently acquired have been things I'd been on the hunt for, for literally years! That La D Da pony? Yeah, that took years.  But he is mine now!

Well, that's it for now! I'm so happy I have another finish! I think the next thing I work on may be a Mother's Day gift for, oh, I don't know.....a special mom I might know of. I doubt I'll have time to finish the framing by Mother's Day, but that's OK!

Have a great week everyone and I hope you get lots of stitching time in!  Until then,

Dog conversion update, Woodlawn, Stash

March is winding down already?!!! How did that happen? My doggie redesign went very well. It's lighter than I wanted but being as this was the second time I've stitched this one, I wasn't eager for a third go 'round. I think she's looking exactly like my little girl Jenny!

This cracks me up every time I look at it.  It's adorable, if I do say so myself! Very fun to do also.

I have some new stash to show off also!!!  Some is from my facebook group or ebay, and some of the new ones are from Woodlawn, when Mom and I went to In Stitches.


Some of these I have been looking for for year! Some of them I owned previously and sold, but missed them, lol.  You've had that happen, right?  It cannot be just me!

Just realized I missed a couple, but I'll add them in next post!

Here are a few Woodlawn/In Stitches purchases-boy, I was quite reserved this year.  Not much at all. Following as well, are a few photos from the show.

I NEED this design!

Absolutely stunning work here

My mom and I had a lovely time.  We got there around 11am, and I was so happy to have seen an old friend who used to own the Everything Cross Stitch in Fredericksburg.  It is closed now, and I miss that shop so much!  We then went to shop the In Stitches store and went out to Carlos O'Kelly's mexican for lunch.  Pretty much a perfect day.  For the previous two weeks, everyone in my house, including me, had been struggling with the flu, so this was a really nice change!

Haven't cooked anything new since the cake, so nothing to show there--been way too sick! I cannot wait for warmer weather and crickets and frogs songs, and more sunlight in the day.   We are getting there, slowly but surely!  Until next time, friends.....
